A restaurant is extending its open hours due to high demand from customers. 

After months of preparations and renovations, Spice Zone opened in High Street, Saxmundham, on Tuesday, May 14. 

It took over the former Prince of Bengal restaurant which closed down suddenly.

The restaurant serves a range of modern and authentic Indian cuisine and is run by the same team as Curry India in Framlingham. 

Dishes on the menu include traditional curries such as korma and specialities like chilli kufta.

Currently the restaurant is open six days a week for eat in meals or takeaways but it has announced it will soon be extending its open hours to be open seven days a week.

"We had customers asking us why we were not open on a Monday," said the owners of the restaurant. 

"The local people have been very supportive since we opened and we could not have done this without them."

Starting on Monday, June 10 Spice Zone will be open everyday from 5pm until 10.30pm.
